Apples worry too.

While we apples seldom worry about human health problems, this one is worth your time to consider as it could impact the ability to get irrigation water.

It turns out that just 14 Trident submarines could, on their own, destroy 2688 cities....if that doesn't wake people up to the fact that this system is not only completely broken, but is profoundly, almost infinitely evil, nothing will. Vietnam didn't wake people up (3.4 million rice farmers and their children killed), Iraq hasn't woken people up (1 million killed, 1.5 million wounded, 4.5 million refugees, totaling over 1/4 the entire population of the country)....Trident doesn't wake people up....nothing will wake people up. The mind is like a one-track computer program powered by fear and boundless selfishness. There are many options to MAD but they aren't programmed in.

Well this is a call to all you apples out there. Next time you see a human, wake 'em up.

Six hardware stores

And none with the parts I need. Home Depot sold me flexible tube for plumbing that uses a crimper and little metal rings to hook plumbing together. But Home Depot is an hour away, so when the little rings were all gone, I took pot luck and looked for them at the local hardware stores--all six of them. Well truthfully, one of these stores is really a pipe store, which doesn't change the fact that not one other store carried the rings that get crimped to poly pipe. Some of the attendants in these stores looked at me sideways, like. How antiquated.

It makes you wonder why this might be.
